    On a related subject, I find the following user-generated feature even more annoying than fake reviews: hotel managers inserting lengthy standard responses to every review. This drowns the useful content in shear volume of print. TripAdvisor should offer the option of making hotel responses invisible, e.g. by replacing them with a link in the main body of text.
